Today marks the first day of September and the one week countdown until school resumes here in Ontario.
While it’s been a number of years since I’ve gone back to school (in a traditional sense), I still feel that back-to-school excitement. That being said, you are never too old to take on a new challenge! One of my friends is a mature student and she is starting a business administration course at the University of Alabama Birmingham this year. Having a wide range of higher level qualifications is crucial if you want to get ahead in your career. Ultimately, when you go back to school, September is all about new beginnings: new classes, new friends, new extra curricular activities…and new school supplies. I used to love the feeling of filling my pencil case with new pens, highlighters and erasers. I also loved having clean binders (since I used to doodle all over them) at the start of the school year. Oh, what I would do to be a kid in kindergarten again, being able to pretend play all day.
If I was heading back to school next week, I’d be looking for a few basic pieces to add to my wardrobe (since you obviously need a new outfit on the first day), plus a new backpack, agenda and pens.
What else would you add to the back to school list?
